A Glass of Chianti

Well, I have nothing substantive to say about this

Because I am, after all, just a clarinet teacher, but this post by a very smart man made me think about something only semi-tangentially related. At the football games in high school, each organization would make a few butcher paper posters cheering the team on in order to inspire victory. (A few examples: "Beat the Bears!" "Katch the Kangaroos!" "Eat the Elks!") My very favorite, however, was when we played Richland High School. Some... uh.... mystery person made this one:

"Reconstruct the Rebels"

You would think with inspiration like that we would have had a victory every once in a while.
